We say that Zermelo proved the well ordering theorem in – but this only means that he boldly postulated the axiom of choice and stuck to it in the face of determined opposition. It is a sign of the currentstate of mathematifal that the book is a compilation of only loosely related articles rather than a survey written like the books of Chruch and Kleene from a single unified point of view.

Schwichtenberg’spiece is a clean exposition of cut-elimination in proof theory and the use of ordinal numbers to measure the complexity of proofs.

Trivia About Handbook of Mathe Mathematicians will find that this book provides them with a unique opportunity to apprise themselves of developments in areas other than their own.

There are two excellent indices which round out a fine production job. Robert Feys – – Amsterdam: The section on model theory, edited with the cooperation of H.


However, it will not satisfy a philosopher interested in learning about the foundational aspects of the area.

Brouwer was making the rounds in a bizarre attempt to turn mathematics into a religion. Turning now to ‘canonical’ matters, it must be admitted that the book is handboo if compared with the classic texts which I mentioned at the outset.

However, there seems to be a general tenden- cy towards a belief in the existence of enormously large sets.

However that may be, these cardinals are certainly ‘hairy’ enough. The stringent precision attainable for mathematical thought has led many authors to a mode of writing which must give the reader an impression of being shut up in a brightly illuminated cell where every detail sticks out with the same dazzling clarity, but without relief.
